Some Tottenham Hotspur fans on social media have been reacting to reports this morning involving Harry Kane.

Sky Sports reported from outside the club’s Hotspur Way training facility that the England captain has failed to turn up for his first day of pre-season training this morning.

There has been plenty of speculation regarding Kane’s future over the last few months, with some reports even previously suggesting that Levy had agreed to sell the striker to City for £160m.

Alasdair Gold claimed recently that Tottenham’s stance remains that the club are not prepared to sell Kane.

Manchester City are tipped to complete a £100m move for Jack Grealish this week but sources indicate that it will not stop them from also pursuing a deal for the Tottenham star.

The Telegraph reported on Saturday that the 28-year-old will make it clear to the Tottenham hierarchy that he wants to move to the Etihad.

While a few Spurs fans were disappointed with Kane on hearing about his intention to push for the move, the some pointed the finger at the club’s hierarchy for not showing enough ambition to convince the striker to stay.

Spurs Web Opinion

I believe Spurs fans who are turning on Kane are wrong to do so as the striker’s ambition to win silverware is certainly understandable. However, this idea of Daniel Levy being unambitious is a ridiculous assertion pushed by fans who have no idea of what ENIC’s business model is.

We are a self-sustaining club and that will not change under the current ownership. So those who are expecting Joe Lewis to just write a cheque are living in fairyland.

The whole point of investing close to a billion pounds on a new stadium is to ensure that our revenue is at par with the big boys so that we can compete with them over the long term. However, the pandemic occurred at the worst possible time for Spurs, just as we were starting to flex our muscles in the transfer market.

The reality is that we as a club are in a different stratosphere both on and off the pitch, compared to where we were when ENIC brought the club in the early 2000s. We became better as a team despite losing the likes of Berbatov, Modric and Bale in the past and there is no reason the same cannot happen with Kane.
